Lake Como insider information
- Take a boat trip round the lake and stop wherever you wish with a special pass bought in Como. It is a wonderful journey with the mountains that surround the lake always in sight.
- Visit Bellagio which is cobbled street heaven and has been called the prettiest village in Europe. Arrive by boat for maximum impact, and get the whole sweep of the two directions of Lake Como. All the restaurants are welcoming whether you are looking for simple pasta and pizza dishes or something more elegant.
- Climb up to Mount Bregagno for a breath-taking view. The hike takes about one and a half hours from Breglia (on the western side of Lake Como) just above Menaggio.
